    I Never Could

    I couldn't do it when I was in my "prime" - and I can't do it now. After a certain hour, my system says "bedtime" and I don't want to ignore something that might find me sleeping on my laptop. I am up early - usually 5:3O or 6:OO the latest - unless I'm not well. This time of...

    Not S E X

    I'm not talking about all nighters as in sex I'm talking about being here on EP all night and then working all day and again and again and again. I'm tired! I need sleep so bad... just one whole day of sleep would work for me. They say you can't catch up... watch me!
